New Nvidia Graphics Drivers Version 285.27 Beta Are Available

September 13th, 2011 · 10 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

Nvidia has made available a new graphics beta driver version 285.27 available which introduces some new features and improvements for 3D Vision stereo 3D users. Nvidia is addressing one of the issues bothering quite a lot of 3D enthusiasts with high-end gaming systems, namely the lack of support for SLI configurations with some stereo 3D capabilities for 3D Vision, as in this driver there is now support for viewing 3DVisionLive.com and YouTube 3D with SLI PCs. However there is more work needed to be done in this aspect, because 3D Vision window mode still does not support SLI setups for stereo 3D games and applications, 3D Vision Photo Viewer, or the 3D Vision Video Player. So do not wonder why you may not see the option to activate the 3D window mode in the Nvidia Control Panel if you have SLI and it is active, you may need to disable the SLI for a while and then re-enable it after you finish using the window 3D mode. This is important to note as the stereo 3D window mode is now the default viewing option for the 3D Vision Photo Viewer software.

The new drivers also add the following 3D Vision game profiles: Aion, Diablo 3, Dead Rising 2: Off The Record, Defense of the Ancients (DOTA) 2, From Dust, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2, Last Remnant Benchmark, Men of War Assault Squad, Stock Car. They also update the 3D Vision game profile for Dirt 3 changing the rating of the game in stereo 3D mode to Excellent, so apparently the new driver gets rid of the issues the game had in stereo 3D mode. Unfortunately the rating of Diablo III is just good as apparently some objects render at wrong depth or incorrectly and DOTA 2 is even worse with a Not Recommended rating and these will be two very popular and widely played games, but you should apparently forget about playing them in stereo 3D mode with 3D Vision for now.
